Systems of Oppression

The foundational power structures and value systems of our society that govern which groups oppress and marginalise other groups. People whose identities fall outside of a society's given norm tend to be targeted by systems of oppression. Examples of systems of oppression include sexism, racism, cisheterosexism, ableism, classism.
